This will hold anything together.
Elaine R. Russell
After just the one use described above, I sealed the bottle per the instructions by squeezing out all of the air before tightening the cap down.
Ya the glue at the dollar store was a better buy than the gorilla glue,so I went to the 9.9 cent store and bingo.

Review updated 9Aug12

1) Elmers "Ultimate High Performance" is also a Polyurethane (PU) glue and (as far as I can tell) it's as good as Gorilla, but cheaper. also used the PL brand glue and can't tell any notable difference between the three. Have not used Sumo but I understand it sets up faster and as a result apparently has a much more limited shelf life (this is generally not a good thing - see item #3)

2) Gorilla Glue (In my opinion) has thought out their bottle and cap design better than the competition. While this seems like a minor thing, it really makes a BIG difference in not being messy or wasting glue (See #4)

3) PU glues work differently - they foam up and expand in the presence of moisture and then harden. This means you will need to think about where the glue comes out and how to keep it from making a mess. Masking tape is your friend.

4) PU glues have a limited shelf life and you probably don't need as much as you think. Due to the expansion (see #3) you use a LOT less than other types of glue. 4 oz should be MORE than enough for most people, 8 oz is a BIG bottle. I personally buy the 2 oz bottle unless I have a major project. PU Glues suck moisture out of the air so unless you plan on using it up within a year or two, a LOT is going to go to waste. Don't ask me how I know this.

5) PU Glue is FANTASTIC for lots of things but woodworking glues are still better for woodworking (see #7). They are stronger and you can't clean PU glues up with water the way you can even with the waterproof Titebond products. Also if you use biscuits you will have to moisten them separately to get them to swell.

-Really tough glue
-More flexible than super glue
-Works on many surfaces, metals, wood, ceramics, some plastics, etc. Best for wood applications.

-It expands, drips and produce tiny bubbles during the drying process. Definitely not for repairing your Lladros or others applications that require hairline precision.
-Glue is not clear but yellow. Very noticeable, not good if you really want a clean finish.
-Make sure you really clean the tip of the bottle or it will be hard to open and use it the next time

I think this glue is best used for porous surfaces like stone, wood, drywall, foam, rug material, cloth and brickwork. It dries brittle, with practically no elasticity, so I don't recommend it for automotive applications where there is a lot of mechanical vibration. It also takes longer than 24 hours to dry, and it foams and leaves a lot of run-off. So if you have holes or voids to fill, this glue is perfect. I consider Gorilla Glue to be the new improved, waterproof version of white glue. The manufacturer claims this is the world's strongest glue, but I don't think so. And it's not an all-purpose glue like Household Goop, or The Welder.

After having a bottle of Gorilla Glue sitting around unopened for over a year, I decided to use it on three repair projects. The first was for multiple joints on a flimsy Ikea Malm chest of drawers. The second project was the reattachment of a shoe sole. Both projects were successful. However, the significant expansion of this polyurethane adhesive caused quite a mess. This degree of expansion (~4X), while beneficial in many regards, is something every user should anticipate. As an experiment, I also tried Gorilla Glue on third item - a plastic handle of a pair of scissors. This was a failure as the glue didn't hold for more than a few uses.

Gorilla glue was particularly effective on repairing my Ikea chest of drawers that had multiple broken joints. Where these joints had failed around the metal fasteners, chips of particle board broke free. Most were too small to recover and reattach. The expansion of polyurethane filled the voids. In fact, I which I used Gorilla glue when I first assembled it as the breaks probably would have never occurred in the first place.

The second repair project was for a shoe with a sole that had delaminated. After being gouged by the only shoe repair shop within a reasonable distance of my residence, I decided to do this repair myself. My concern originally was that I didn't have a hydraulic press to provide adequate compression during the drying process. Fortunately, I was able to find two hardware clamps that worked well. At the time, I didn't realize how important this was as Gorilla Glue expands so much that without mechanical clamps, too much polyurethane would have formed between the sole and body of the shoe.

I purchased this Gorilla Glue to see if I could salvage a resin molded rocking horse decoration, about 10 inches tall, but heavy in weight. I've tried many other products, including super glues and super gels, to glue the resin horses leg back to the rocker bottom to no avail until I tried this product. The horses legs wanted to pull toward each other and it took some force to keep them anchored to the rocker bottom, where they original were spaced. My biggest challange was finding something to wedge between the front two legs to set the right spacing for the glue to dry in place. I was concerned that even if the glue dried, would it be strong enough to be secure when I removed the wedge holding the legs in place. I followed the directions on the bottle, moistening the pieces to be glued, waited the 4 hours, and it turned out perfect, very sturdy! I've also tried this product on a ceramic tea cup and is worked very well, and on wood is works probably the best. I had some miniature wooden cars where the roof broke off, on so I wet the wood down really good, applied the glue, watched the foam expand, checked the setting every 20 minutes and wiped any extra foam off, after the four hours dry time, it was as good as new. I've tried using this glue on plastic products but haven't had any luck with that. I've had some childrens' toys break with plastic and rubber surfaces and the glue doesn't seem to want to stick or set. The foaming is kind of a pain, and you might want to monitor that on your project, but if it works well that's something I'm willing to overlook. I was pleased that there is no odor at all using this glue, even when first applied. Overall, this glue works really well on most surfaces, and will be a good alternative when other glues don't perform. I don't think there's any one product that does job exceptionally.
